The cholera is steadily diminishing in

was 5,919 cases. It has now
<come down to less than 3,000, a falling off’'
It is spreading in other quarters, espec
ially in France,'and seems gravitating to
Italy. It cannot make very great head
way before frost, which checks its onward
progress. We may consider that the
heaviest of the pestilence is over for this
w - Cholera is a hot-weather epi-
The lesson is a plain one that presents
L itself. All hands and all countries must
prepare during the winter for the invasion
aiext summer of the appalling disease.
The whole of Europe should adopt sani
tary precautions against the pestilence. It
will almost certainly resume its progress
And it behooves us in this country to
• ake steps to render its visit harmless. We
will certainly have to grapple with it. The
history of these diseases shows a steady
anarch. We can only conquer the invader
by sanitary preparation. The frightful
’desolation it has done in Spain should
warn us. ______

A Capitol man found General Toombs seated
in a rocking chair in his room in the Kimball

Logan. Though it was the first of September,
ami very warm inside and on the streets, still
the windows were down and a coal fire burning
brightly in the open grate of his room. There
was scarcely a movement visible in his form as
he reclined back in the rocking chair. Having
asked him a few questions relative to the pro
ceedings to-morrow, and especially to some re
marks of his own on the occasion, he replied that
“he was very sorry that he could not do so, but

Doubting Doctor Dumfounded.
Triumph Over Cancer -- No
Longer Room for Doubt.
Something over eight months ago one
of the prominent physicians in Atlanta
was called upon to examine a lady who
was suffering with a cancer on her face.
It was of some seven years standing. It
was exceedingly angry in appearance and
very painful, involving the nose and nasal
organs. The physician had always re
garded skin cancer as incurable. The
Swift’s Specific Company had evidences
sufficient to believe that their remedy
would cure cancer, and hence requested
the physician in question to make a criti
cal examination of the case before him,
as he had determined not to believe until
he saw one cured under his own observa
tion. After an extended and careful ex
amination he pronounced it a skin (or
epithelioma) cancer, and declared that if
Swift’s Specific could cure that case it
could cure any case of cancer that had
ever come under his eye.
Last Tuesday the lady, Mrs. Joicie A.
McDonald, who lives near Atlanta, came
into the office of Swift’s Specific Company
and reported herself well. The physician
above referred to had watched the case
with considerable interest, and some
three weeks ago had examined the lady,
and, in his judgment, pronounced her
perfectly cured. He is now completely
convinced that Swift’s Specific is a success
in the treatment of cancer, and does not
hesitate to so recommend.
The following is the statement of the
For seven years past I have been suffer
ing with a cancer on my face. At first it
gave me but little trouble, and I paid very
little attention to it. After a time it be
gan to increase in size, and also to pain
me. The simple remedies were applied
to alleviate the pain, but J was not con
scious of its true nature, thinking it only
a sore of malignant nature and would soon
pass away under the ordinary treatment.
In this I was mistaken, as the place con
tinued to grow and extended into my
nose, from whence came a yellowish dis
charge very 'offensive in character. It
was also inflamed and annoyed me a great
deal. About eight months ago I was in
Atlanta, at the bouse of a friend, Mrs. C.
D. 11., who observed the condition of my
face, and so strongly recommended the
use of Swift’s Specific that I determined
to make an effort to procure it. In this I
was successful, and began its use. The
influence of the medicine at first was to
somewhat aggravate the sore, but soon
the inflammation was allayed, and I be
gan to improve after the first few bottles.
My general health has greatly improved.
I am stronger and am able to do any kind
of work. The cancer of my face began to
decrease and the outer to heal, until there
is not a vestige of it left—only a little sear
marks the place where it had been. lam
devoutly grateful for this wonderful relief,
from what everybody thought would be
certain death. lam ready to answer all
questions relative to this cure.

phone, published at Sylvania, the county
site of Scriven county, Ga., in the number
bearing date August 14 the editor, Col.
Win. L. Matthews, Jr., has the following
in reference to a remarkable cure of rheu
matism by Swift’s Specific:
We know a gentleman in this county
who six months ago was almost a hopeless
eripple from an attack of rheumatisni. He
could scarcely hobble across a room, used
crutches, and said himself that he had
llt|le if any hope of ever recovering. We
saw him in our town last week walking
about as lively as any other man, and in
the finest health and spirits. Upon our
inquiry as to what, had worked such a
wofiderful change in his condition he re
plied that Swift’s Specific had cured him.
He said he was on the eve of starting for
the Hot Springs in search of relief, but was
persuaded by one of his neighbors to try
Swift’s Specific, and after using one and a
half dozen bottles he has been transformed
from a miserable cripple to a happy,
healthy man. He is one of our most
worthy and successful citizens, and is none
other than Mr. E. B. Lambert.
ASlubborii Case of Scrofula.
I have been afflicted with scrofula from
my infancy, and in consequence have al
ways been a frail and delicate creature. I
might truthfully say that I was raised
chiefly on mercury and potash. These
remedies for the time being would dry up
the fearful ulcers, with which 1 suffered,
but they would return with greater vio
lence. 1 was the merest shadow as to
form and person. My digestion was all
deranged, and my existence was most
wretched. Everything that could be done
for me was done, but no permanent bene
fit was derived. At last a great tumor
came on my neck below the left ear. It
increased in size until my head was forced
to the right shoulder, and in this ungainly
and uncomfortable position I was com
pelled to carry my head. The doctors de
cided that it was there to stay as long as
life continued, and for many years it did
remain. In March, 1884, at the sugges
tion of Colonel John Traylor, I was in
duced to try Swift’s Specific. My system
responded to the medicine promptly, and
I began to improve from almost the first
bottle. That fearful tumor has all disap
peared, and every appearance of the dis
ease has left my. person except a small,
hard lump on the right side of my neck,
and that is disappearing rapidly. From a
fragile little girl I have developed into as
healthy and rqjjust young'lady as there is
in the neighborhood. Swift’s Specific is
the only remedy that has ever given me
any permanent relief, and I am in better
health and weigh more than I ever did in
my life before. My old friends scarcely
recognize me since this wonderful change
has been wrought in my appearance. My
gratitude is unbounded for what this med
icine has done for me.

I was afflicted with blood poison in its
worst stage. All remedies failed, but after
using Swift’s Specific according to direc
tions, lam proud to say I am cured. I
am to-day sound, and have no trace of
having been otherwise.

Two years ago I contracted blood poison.
I went immediately under treatment by a
physician, but I continued to grow worse.
A friend of mine advised me to take 8. S.
S. 1 did so, ami it cured me entirely, as
1 have never since then seen the least
dence of it. Charles Walker,

nineteenth century. For eradicating blood
poison it has no equal.
A friend who had been a great sufferer
from that disease, contracted during the
war, you will be glad to know has, by the
use of your remedy, cleansed his system
entirely of that and mercurial rheumatism
so that his skin and tongue and breath
are as pure as a child’s without, the least
He desires me to say this to you, and to

your remedy and they surely will be well
In his behalf, and to encourage others,
